Fernandez, Argentine Government Approval Drops, Clarin Says

June 10, 2012

Approval of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s government has dropped 22 percentage points since October, Clarin reported, citing Buenos Aires-based pollster Management & Fit.

Approval of Fernandez’s government dropped to 42.1 percent from 64.1 percent eight months ago, while disapproval rose to 50.4 percent in that period from 29.4 percent, the newspaper said.

Fernandez also is losing support as 38.9 percent this month said they had a “good” image of her, down from 64.1 percent in September, according to Clarin, citing Management & Fit. The drop in support for Fernandez and her government is related to an increasing perception that the economy is deteriorating, Clarin said.

Management & Fit polled 1,626 people from June 1 to June 6 in Buenos Aires, and in the north and south of the country, Clarin said.
